Chris Thompson
Expert 
Brandon Funston
Fantasy Analyst
He was an advanced metric darling in his trial run as a RB in '16, and he really only needs to prove he can pass protect this preseason to open '17 as the unquestioned backfield leader in GB 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Montgomery has plenty of ability and should at the very least compete for No. 1 running back touches in a great offense. The Packers did add competition, but Montgomery has the upper hand, and unless news turns sour for his shot as the lead back, I'll be targeting him.Thompson is a good receiving back, but his value depends often on game script. I expect Cousins to be passing a lot this season though, and Thompson should be a useful back more often than not this year.
Staff Rankings
QB List
As anyone who has owned former Packers RB Eddie Lacy can attest, the Packers can be maddening in their backfield misuse. Still, they are a top-shelf offense, and the lead back job appears to be Montgomery's to lose. As a converted wide receiver, he offers reception upside that Lacy never really had. There is top-6 upside if Montgomery can get enough touches.Thompson is an electrifying player, but his upside is capped by his strictly third-down role.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Comparisons are anywhere from David Johnson to complete bust. Last years production should be considered a floor (12.9 ppr ppg)Redskins RB Chris Thompson expects to see more work this season after proving he can stay healthy the last two years.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
HC McCarthy: "He's a running back;" 5.9 YPC in 2016; led NFL in yards after contact per touch (2.8); GB letting Lacy go a good sign.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Montgomery has a chance to win the starting job and he would be an interesting flex option with RB2 upside in PPR leagues. He will likely be in a RBBC with rookie RB Jamaal Williams, who is pushing him for the starting job early in camp. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Last season, Montgomery only had one game with double-digit carries and it has to concern fantasy owners that the Packers went out and drafted three running backs this spring. Montgomery, however, apparently added plenty of muscle and improved his pass blocking this off-season which could make him a steal should he be able to hold off Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones for the starting role.

Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Montgomery looks like a RB and really just needs to figure out pass protection. Role is still a question mark but the talent is there to make him a draft day steal. 
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Montgomery will start the season as the feature back in Green Bay and produce RB2 numbers. A timeshare with rookie back Jamaal Williams could develop later in the season. Auction value $18 Thompson caught 49 passes last season but he is mainly a third down back with limited Fantasy upside. Auction Value $2
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite them drafting two running backs, Montgomery likely isn't going anywhere. He offers something in the passing game both Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones don't, wide receiver skills. His 5.1 yards after contact was the best in the NFL last year, though the sample size was small.While some argue about Robert Kelley and Samaje Perine until they're blue in the face, Thompson continues to be looked over. Most don't realize that Thompson finished as the No. 28 running back in PPR leagues last year, and that was with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson on the roster. His role can actually grow despite the addition of Perine.
